Grants available for waste-reduction and clean-up projects

If you have a good idea for waste reduction, sustainability, or city clean-up projects, you might want to consider applying for one of Waste Management’s grants.

Waste Management is partnering up with Seattle Public Utilities to provide grants to groups or individuals who have project ideas that support waste reduction, sustainable materials management, and cleaning up neighborhoods in Seattle.

Grant recipients will be selected based on the following criteria: environmental impact, waste reduction impact, neighborhood impact, community member involvement, and the project plan.

Up to five grants will be awarded to projects ranging from $500 to $10,000 — Waste Management has $10,000 total grant funding available.

Applicants must be Waste Management customers, and can be community groups, schools, organizations or businesses. The work must take place in Waste Management’s service areas 1 and 4 (service area map here).

Applications are due October 1st; to apply, fill out the online form and email it to recyclenw@wm.com.

Maybe a group of Commons ‘residents’ can apply for a grant to keep their public space clean for a fee. They should be doing it for free, since they don’t pay any rent or taxes to live in the Commons, but hey, this is America! Nothing’s free!

Someone should investigate the needle “exchange” providers. These were promoted as a way for addicts and others to EXCHANGE used needles for clean ones. Instead some “exchanges” are apparently just giving them away with no care for the dangerous and careless disposal practices of the needles’ recipients.
Needle exchanges are funded by government grants.

Whomever is an object pronoun and works like the pronouns him, her, and them (Give the document to whomever in the department). Whoever is a subject pronoun and works like the pronouns he, she, and they (Whoever wrote this poem should win a prize).
